Thanks to workman for a recent post that inspired me to put together these examples of vintage toy “Space Guns”. Some squirted water, some just made a clicking noise, others shot out sparks, [my fave], and the middle one blew bubbles. I think I might have owned one like the red, yellow and blue one.
Highlights of cuisine and interior design from the fifties to the seventies, [If the food didn’t make you sick then the decor would]. Check out the guy’s denim “leisure jacket” next to the macrame wall hanging, grooovy!
In “Space Program: Mars,” Tom Sachs fills the Park Avenue Armory with a kind of childhood fantasy gesamptkunstwerk — a collection of space travel modules impeccably replicated in everyday materials. The artist takes a clear joy in the work. In his role as mission commander, he orders an army of assistants to make repairs, give demonstrations, and answer any and all space travel-related questions.
